Carol Miller, chair of Civil and Environmental Engineering, will be inducted as a Fellow member of the Engineering Society of Detroit (ESD) at the ESD's annual awards ceremony on June 27 at the Fillmore.
- Carol Miller was featured in articles by several news outlets about Wayne State University's $557,000 grant from the Great Lakes Protection Fund to address the Great Lakes Governors' priority to reduce toxin levels in the lakes. Miller is team leader of the project that will work on technology that could significantly reduce the emission of mercury and other toxic substances by power plants in the Great Lakes basin.
- Carol Miller was featured by several news outlets for a $25,000 planning grant from the National Science Foundation to develop a strategic plan for a field-based water research center. Known as HEART - the Huron to Erie Alliance for Research and Training - the center will focus on the development of field facilities at Lake St. Clair Metropark and Belle Isle along the Huron-to-Erie corridor, a binational body of water shared by the United States and Canada connecting the upper and lower Great Lakes. The project is a collaborative effort between Wayne State, Macomb Community College, the Huron-Clinton Metropark Authority and Macomb County. Miller is leading the project.
